FORS A/S: Diversion or conversion:

Operational and economic analysis of the potential by converting an older activated sludge plant to a root zone plant, or diverting the wastewater flow to a nearby activated sludge plant.

FORS A/S: Centralized sludge treatment:

Operational and economic analysis of potential energy production, as well as environmental and climate impact from centralized treatment of sludge from 20 treatment plants at two central plants.

FORS A/S: Energy neutral or producing treatment plant:

Review of machinery and processes and analysis of data from laboratory and SCADA system to propose replacements and adaptation of equipment and processes to convert a traditional 125,000 PE wastewater treatment plant to energy neutral or producing operations.

FORS A/S: Biogas engine:

Analysis of potential energy production and coverage of necessary operational measures to ensure maintenance of stable engine operation.

Roskilde Forsyning A/S: Pyrolysis or gasification:

Analysis and calculation of the energy potential, as well as assessment of operational possibilities, advantages and disadvantages, by pyrolysis or gasification of surplus sludge at treatment plants.
